SMC Pentax-A 50mm F 1.4 K Mount Exc, Tested
Beautiful copy of this lens for Pentax K mount, for film or DSLR. Like all A-series lenses this very fast standard lens supports P and Tv exposure modes in addition to Av and M. I have tested this lens on a Pentax ME Super and got excellent results back. This lens is very highly rated everywhere, especially for the relatively low cost. Optics are perfect, no issues whatsoever, it was cleaned up last year by a specialist, and comes with an attached, original Pentax front cap and a generic back cap.
The SMC Pentax-A 50 mm f/ 1.4 is a high quality kit lens for film and SLR cameras with the Pentax K bayonet mount.
It is an excellent 50 mm lens. It delivers a remarkable sharpness across the frame (it is rather soft when wide open, but stopping down to f/ 2.0 onwards improves the situation).
The lens is perfect for portrait photography on digital cameras. It produces soft and smooth out of focus blurring. On other cameras it can be used as an excellent fast standard lens.
The focus and aperture rings travel very smoothly.
The SMC Pentax-A 50 mm f/ 1.4 operates with all PENTAX SLR autofocus and digital cameras in all the modes.
